    Default Paddy McGuinness (close friend of Enda) appointed to chair of Western Development Commission

    Ah yes, here we go. Sunday Times are reporting that one of Enda's closest friends has managed to be appointed chair of the WDC. Remember when all the Blueshirts were up in arms over close friends of FF landing jobs? Well, the same Blueshirts will be on this thread making up excuses.

    FF=FG.

    Chuckle.

    You jest Sir, who would have thought that FF's rise would be because of FG cronyism. You couldn't make it up.

    Probably on the basis, as Sean Lemass said, that if he is best qualified, party membership should not disbar him.
    Not like Bertie who said you just give it to your friends.

    Its a very nice quango, as it has the power to give grants and or loans to businesses. FG friendly businesses might be very happy with this.

    By all accounts, the man is hardly unqualified, inasmuch as anybody is qualified for to head up a regional development body. And all other things being equal, why wouldn't the Taoiseach or the Minister for Environment want a political sympathist in the role? There really is a difference between giving a job to a qualified person who happens to be politically connected and giving it to a person whose only qualification (if that's what you can even call it) is their political connections.
